Life's a changin'

Hi! Life's been a little crazy so it has been hard for me to get time to give an update, but here it is...

I have been allowed to start trying new foods, which has been interesting. Some things have gone really well and others... well, lets just say there have been times I am throwing up 3-5 minutes after eating it. Yuck! A couple times I was literally throwing up into a cup while driving on the freeway. Not fun. But, it makes you learn pretty quickly what works and what doesn't!

I am now a size 16-18. Pretty soon I will have pretty much NO clothes in my closet that fit anymore. Which is good and bad all at the same time! hahaha Aaron's mom bought me a few shirts a couple weeks ago that are 18/20 (thanks janis!!) so I should be able to wear thsoe for a while even if they area too big. I will have to start hitting some thrift stores, the goodwill or SOMETHING. It seems my weight loss has kinda slowed down, but my body itself is changing rapidly. I really wish I had a gym membership so I could start toning this new body of mine, but we just cannot afford it. So, I'll just have to deal with it what I got

As I mentioned a couple posts ago, I was going to be starting a new job. Well, that happened this week! Last week was full of saying goodbye to my friends and babies at KinderCare and this week I started nannying my God Sons, William and Carlton. It has been really great so far. The commute kinda sux, but it is a sacrifice I am willing to make. (And really... the drive has given me lots of time to listen to all kinds of choir music that I need to listen to so I can chose my choir's fall/christmas music.) My friends (The parents of my God Sons) purchased a lot of supplies for us so it is really great. I have a room upstairs that we turned into a classroom and the sunroom was transformed into the car/train room as well as the art room. I love doing art with toddlers (they are 1 and 2 years old) and we have tons of really great supplies to make that happen. I love it! I have some pics I posted on facebook if you want to see them :-)!/album.php...8925913&ref=mf I'll be adding some more tonight as well.

Here are some new comparison pics... A lot of people were pretty shocked at how I looked so I figure it has been too long since I last posted new pics! haha


  1. girl, you're amazing! As far as the clothes go, have you thought about altering the waist on them for awhile until you reach your goal weight? That's what I did when I lost so much. You've come a long way! Keep it up.


  2. Robin, You look great!! I am so proud of you. Get yourself ready so you can be the best cocoon for that baby that you can be! :) Love you. I'll be praying for your both.

  4. Robin-
    You are doing great girl! I am so amazed by you all the time. I still think about you often and hope that things continue to go well so that you can get that sticky little bean!
